An exciting new series of guitar ensemble music. Each title includes a full score and parts for four guitars and optional bass guitar. Teacher and student performance notes and a listening CD are included. "Romanza" is easily one of the most beautiful and popular pieces in the classical guitar repertoire. The song was originally popularized by the Spanish guitar virtuoso Andres Segovia. Because of the tune's "guitaristic" nature, this arrangement sounds very impressive but is, in fact, very simple. Perfect for concerts and recitals. Easy level: appropriate for middle and high school students in Level 1 of the Method.
